My run (aka Shuffle) through a visual Feast!

Taking time to absorb the surroundings is key to creating works that are relevant to this experience here in Kyoto. One of my favorite ways to do this is to go for a run (aka shuffle, as I barely lift my feet...) because I can cover a lot of ground, and hear, smell, see and breathe (yes lots of heavy breathing even though I'm just shuffling) the energies and aesthetics surrounding me. Yesterday I decided to take a few photos to share on this blog.

The birds were out in all their splendour after the cold rains we've been having.

Jitensha is the word for bikes here, and there are many many many Jitensha.
